The Conway Symphony Designer Houses, located in the Turnberry subdivision, will open for one night only for a Bare Bones preview, Thursday, Sept. 20, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Tickets are $15 at the door, and include a dinner of hamburgers and hot dogs, beverages, and a tour of both houses. The event is underwritten by Summit Bank.
"Summit Bank is pleased to be involved with the Conway Symphony Designer House event which benefits the Conway Symphony Orchestra," said Derrek Thomason, Conway Region president for Summit Bank. "We look forward to the Bare Bones event where the public can view the two symphony houses before they transition to the beautiful finished product."
This year’s Designer House features two houses, located at 1005 Edinburgh & 1025 Edinburgh, in Conway. The houses are among the first available in Turnberry, a neighborhood featuring European-inspired architecture developed by Watson Homes. Turnberry is in West Conway, off Prince Street, directly past the Shady Valley subdivision.
Bare Bones gives visitors a chance to view the ‘bare bones’ of the newly-constructed houses, with all of the rooms open for touring. After the Bare Bones event, the houses will be closed to visitors while dozens of professional designers transform the rooms into showcases of their work and style. This event will be the only chance to see the interior of the houses until the opening night dinner, on Oct. 18, at 6:30 p.m. The designer houses will remain open for tours Tuesdays through Sundays, Oct. 19 – Nov. 9. The houses are closed on Mondays.
The Designer House, held every other year, is the major fundraising event for the Conway Symphony Guild, and all proceeds benefit the educational and outreach programs of the symphony, including a classroom program and free performances. The Conway Symphony Orchestra is now in its 28th season. For more information, visit ConwaySymphony.org or call (501) 269-1066.
